temperatures. winds out of the south at 9 miles per hour. future tracker6 showing you how we'll have that low lying cloud cover around with sunny mix through most of the day and then by the time we get up to about two or 3 o'clock this afternoon, there's the chance every now and then of a little pop-up shower or maybe even a thunderstorm. we're mostly dry, though, at 3 o'clock and the best chance of anything popping this afternoon is probably to the north of philadelphia and through the northern suburbs. by 6 o'clock again not a lot happening but an isolated shower or thunderstorm possible. and later on pretty much the same story. most of the action to the north and west. hot conditions today, though. that's going to be the big story for most of you. 75 degrees by 8 o'clock, 82 by 11 o'clock, 90 by 2 o'clock and that's your high today, 92. we'll probably get that rather late in the day around 4 o'clock before sliding back to 90 by 5 o'clock and again an isolated pop-up shower or thunderstorm possible later in the afternoon or evening. very humid out there today. high temperatures across the region, how about 90 in allentown, 91 in reading, trenton and wilmington.
